COVID-19 Protocols and Updates

 

We at the Vermont Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired are committed to doing our best work under these challenging circumstances. Protecting our staff and the people that we serve is very important to us –as is providing the critical vision services to people of all ages who rely on us to do so.

While this crisis evolves, so are our services. We are cancelling or rescheduling our various public events. Direct in-person services are being suspended but we are adjusting to phone intake and phone based services; as well as video tools such as FaceTime and video conferencing and online learning for our students and adults wherever possible.

We appreciate your understanding, and your patience as we all work together to fulfill our mission while playing our part to help keep our staff, clients, and our community safe! Here are our COVID-19 protocols that we have implemented for staff, volunteers, and clients:
